Mala Necklaces at Power Yoga Buffalo


Registration for this class is closed, but check out our next class with Power Yoga Buffalo!

MUSEjar is headed to the Power Yoga Buffalo Studio where we will combine two very artful practices, yoga and mala making. With a 45min yoga practice and a 1 hour mala making class, there is no better way to enjoy your Sunday afternoon. Everything you need to enhance your mind, body, and soul in one spot!

A Japa Mala or Mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskritas japa. We will be showing you how to create your very own Mala Necklace, complete with the traditional wood beads, semi precious stone marker beads and tassel.

She loves mixed media, and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

Gretchen Meyers is the owner of Peg's Hardware. She has been professionally producing jewelry since 2011. Two years later she opened Makers, a diy workshop for modern craft. Meyers’ has a background in graphic design and a budding love of textiles.
